and comprehensive response to the financial crisis, an event that devastated the american economy, cost the american people trying to dollars and millions of jobs and undermine the confidence in our financial system requires if it is to drive and support a growing economy. the sweeping scope of this financial reform legislation sometimes it secures the fact that despite its breath, and is rooted in the handful of sound principles that should have been more firmly in place before the crisis in his embrace serves to make markets more stable and efficient. simple principles, like markets should be transparent, regulation should be consistent without gaps that can be exploited by those who wish to indulge in risky, destabilizing or even illegal behavior. market participants, not taxpayer should read the risk market activities and regulator should have willingness in both the need to apply these principles to the day-to-day workings of the financial markets. the dodd-frank actress at a principles into the foundation for effective regulation. interestingly, the title of the historic legislation seems to s

in the economy, which is this big, darker issue that the country is facing right now. it's worrying people a lot. and so, the idea that he can talk about things like the binders comment, which is really just a play off a comment that mitt romney made during the presidential debate, where he talks about his desire to hire a lot of women. and it's not helping him. i think that's reflected in the poll numbers because you're seeing right now romney is tied, or seems to have a kind of momentum moving into the time week. that's just what pollsters are saying. i think democrats feel that this will help particularly with women voters, because they make up the majority, and if they can kind of put forward this argument that mitt romney wants to take away somethings that are very important to them, then they can get the edge amongst that party leck rate. which in a very close election can be really critical. host: thank you both for being with us on this news maker for this sunday. >> watch our newsmakers with rande paul again today at 6:00 p.m. eastern on c-span. now watch our coverage of the presidentia

regulations on the banks that crashed our economy. medicare voucherized. >> reporter: i think it's fair to say that four years ago early voting helped obama win the white house. the same thing is being said this year, that a lot of voters will come early and vote before election day. this is our new poll out in ohio. among those voting early, you can see the president has a big advantage there, 58% to 39%. mitt romney has the advantage. the romney campaign says they're doing much better than john mccain's campaign. >> just getting back to florida real quickly, you mentioned mitt romney's events there, one exactly where you are at the moment. but what is he going to be focusing on specifically in florida? who is he targeting? >> reporter: he's going to be targeting early voters for sure, but also he's going to be targeting those remaining undecided voters. also one of the other missions today is to kind of excite the base, the republicans and conservatives here in florida and get them out to the polls. he's going to be joined in all three stops by senator marco rubio, the freshman senator here,
that may pennsylvania economy dominate, in particular steel and coal, over the course of about 40 years after world war ii, those industries went away. the economy suffered and suffered severely. the voters out there are typically democratic blue-collar working-class men and women, roman catholic in religion -- certainly not all of them, and pro-union. these were the quintessential reagan democrats. they were in counties adjacent to pittsburgh like beaver and westmorland and washington and corrine and further to the east -- kim-shree and fayette. those counties have a propensity to vote republican, particularly in the elections. they are culturally conservative, pro-gun, pro-life, not particularly fond of gay- rights. then think of pennsylvania, draw a big t up the center of the state, fanned out across the new york border, not quite getting to erie or the northeastern part of the state, the big t -- that is the conservative area of the state. basically white, protestant, does not have a definable ethnic group in particular. once you get east of the susquehanna river, with the exception
will be to restore the american economy so people can purr shoe their dreams as they see fit by limited government and build capacity so people don't have to get in line and be dependent upon government. no one wants to do that. we want a society where the next generation has more opportunities than what we have. and the american dream is what this election is about. are we going to reverse the track we're on which is a false sense of economic security where we get in line and have the government solve our problems for us? as if that's ever worked in american history. or are we going to restore american greatness the way we know it works best to create jobs in a strategic way with a guy as president that will work to build solutions rather than just talking about things? i was governor of this state for eight years and i had to work with a lot of democrats but i had to work with a lot of republicans as well because they were in the majority the whole time. imagine what it would be like to be a governor of a state where 85% of the legislature was in a different party. it would require leadership th

designates 36 bank holding companies as liable to create the instability in the u.s. economy if they fail. in addition, it goes on to permit the financial stability oversight council. it designates an unknown number of additional nonbank institutions that could create instability in the u.s. economy. now what does it mean when congress gives this authority or designates this notion in the statute? what it says is these institutions are too big to fail. so not only are we worried about the too big to fail but we have made the problem worse by actually embedded in the statute for these banking institutions and promoting the fsoc to designate certain institutions and we understand just from reading the newspapers that they have for the large insurance companies and in one case a finance company to be designated as too big to fail. what does it mean? what effect does that have? on the creditors will get these institutions and much safer investments than others. first of all once they are so designated they are supposed to be regulated stringently by the fed to really don't know what stringent

thought. the unemployment rate inched up from 7.8% to 7.9%. the economy added an average of 173,000 jobs per month since july. mitt romney issued a statement that said the unemployment rate is a sad reminder the economy is a virtual standstill for the jobless rate is higher than it was when president obama took office. we will hilton -- we will hear more about the unemployment number from both campaigns today. they are on the campaign trail with four days to go into the elections. president obama has three stops in ohio. coming up in about 15 minutes here on c-span, we will take you to the first stop of the day in hilltard outside columbus. the first lady michelle obama is campaigning in virginia today. at 5:30 eastern, we will take you to petersburg where she will be speaking with supporters. tonight on c-span, mitt romney and paul brian will be joined by their wives for a rally in west chester, ohio. another big names are appearing including condoleezza rice and senator john mccain this evening at 7:30 eastern and we will have that live on c-span. while we wait to hear from president o
. ronnie gave the republican address this week. he talked about the u.s. economy and the presidential election. >> this weekend, millions of americans are still picking up the pieces from one of the worst storms in our history. i toured new jersey with governor chris cristie and witness the devastation firsthand. it is heartbreaking. families have lost loved ones. entire communities have been wiped away. even the first responders to repeatedly put themselves in harm's way have had losses of their own. today, i ask everyone to keep them in your prayers. as president, and promised them this. your country will be there for as long as it takes to recover and rebuild. throughout the week, i have been in constant contact with governors and mayors in affected areas who are doing an excellent job in extraordinary circumstances. we owe the first responders to have been working around-the- clock our deepest gratitude. our first priority is to make sure if the communities have everything they need to recover from the storm. i ordered that resources be made available as soon as they are needed an
, and the minute that the story started, in "the new york times" and the "washington post" that iran and economy is indeed in great trouble, the goal posts tend to shift a little bit. matters no longer by getting them back to the table are getting a deal, but now more and more open question marks were raised about can this actually lead to regime change, cannot have it for a couple more months to see what else we can get. as that happens, the interest of the suffering party then decreases to engage indigo should as well because the negotiations can become a negotiation for the terms -- and instead they tend to define their search for the next game changer. something that will once again be able to turn the table and find an exit way from the very situation there and what now but look what happened after the talks collapsed in 2010 and 2009 if the iranians started and enrichment at the 20 some of the there were question marks, significant question marks whether the iranians were succeeding in doing this but they managed to do it. the western imposes sanctions on iran hoping that would change the
